Video: Nichols Killed Court Reporter Over Cookies She Baked for His Jury

Unbelievable testimony from a court-appointed psychologist who states rampage killer and rapist Brian Nichols killed a court reporter because she baked cookies and brownies for his jury during his rape trial.

Nichols was convicted of four murders and other charges during a rampage that began on March 11, 2005 when the madman overpowered a lone female guard in a block of cells at the Fulton county courthouse during his rape trial. Nichols was charged with raping an ex-girlfriend and holding her hostage for days in her apartment in August of 2004.

Natalie Cole is Fighting Back

Singer says she’s a “warrior” in her battle against hepatitis C.

Eight-time Grammy winner Natalie Cole, 58, hasn’t thrown in the towel on her career. In fact, she’s giving life everything she has. The acclaimed singer “gets real” with Jet magazine and opens up about being diagnosed with hepatitis C as well as how she’s coping with kidney failure. “I hope nobody I know gets it. I hope they find a cure,” she said.

Despite her illness, Cole says she still wants to look her best at all times. “Honey, I can’t be looking sick and be looking bad. Some things are not acceptable. You got to roll with it,” she said, while laughing. (p. 44)

Video: DTP’s Shawnna Upstages Luda at The Highline Ballroom

[EDITED: Nov. 26, 2008 3:42 PM to correct spelling of Shawnna’s name (again)]

This video might not be work safe.

We interrupt our pre-Thanksgiving Day posts to bring you this important post for the fellas:

Remember when Ludacris dumped all of his artists awhile back? Well, he kept Shawnna, the First Lady of DTP — and we can see why.

Shawnna and her ample assets upstaged and rang rings around her boss Luda during his gig at the Highline Ballroom in NYC last night. Brown Sugar got it going on! Check out the seductive action at the 5:31 mark.

Peep more clips from Luda’s show featuring T-Pain at the Highline Ballroom courtesy of loyal reader Jeorgina! I agree with Jeorgina, T-Pain should never try to sing without his vocoder.


Photo of the Day: Thanksgiving Hairstyle

This is for those of you who are heading home for the holidays who need that one perfect hairstyle to go with your special Thanksgiving Day outfit and makeup. :)

Video: Snoop Thanksgiving Day on Martha Stewart Show

Rapper Snoop Dogg made an appearance on the Martha Stewart Show yesterday. Snoop joins a short list of rappers who have tied on apron strings to cook in Martha’s kitchen.

You can tell Snoop doesn’t know his way around any kitchen. But it’s fun watching him forget what he’s supposed to be making.
